We asked you to send in your pictures of old, but working, appliances. Here are a few we received. Mrs Joan Archer took a picture of her Kenwood Chef food processor.
Diane Dark: "This is my old Sony Trinitron portable colour television that is about 37 years old. It can still be watched."
Stephen Jeffrey: "My Dad's old ZX Spectrum, it must be 25-30 years old now and it is still in perfect working order. I used it to learn BASIC in high school. It's one problem was that after a while with it sitting on your lap it tended to get a bit hot."
John Puddifoot: "A Philco domed radio, black bakelite that was bought 1936 and was my grandparent' s. It's an original and working perfectly."
Jack Dawsey: "A Hoover Constellation. The original plastic handle broke several years ago and was replaced with a leather strap, apart from that it's original and working."
John Peedle: "I have a 1926 (approx) Siemens Xcel copper electric kettle. It's beautiful and worked the last time I tried it. Interestingly, it has a concealed element - just shows how the wheel of technology turns!"
Mark Streete: "Most parts are still available owing to the simplicity of these old devices. This makes them repairable where modern electronic units rely on some part that a limited number were produced for the production run."
Mark Streete: "We run itunes from the computer into the radio gram, or plug my Nokia N95 into it. It sounds fantastic. I stress both run on thermionic valve technology but can be driven from a modern MP3 player, how bizarre is that."
What are these?
